[McIDAS #MEK-787706]: 20060126: MD data once again available on allegan; upgrade to v2005 request

Hi John,

> Thanks again for your help Tom!!!
> Your help and thoroughness are *greatly* appreciated.

No worries.  Glad to help when I can.

Very good.  Because of the increased disk space, I have turned GRID
decoding back on and increased the number of days to keep POINT
(e.g., surface, upper air, etc.) data from 2 to 3.

Say HI to Rob for me.

> We were running mcidas_start.sh on another client system and received
> the following error:

I don't recognize 'mcidas_start.sh'.  Is it a locally written script?

> ld.so.1: mcwish: fatal: libfui.so.2: open failed: No such file or directory

I have never seen this problem before.

> libfui.so.2 was not installed on the client system so I will install Sun

> The second issue that we ran into we weren't able to resolve.   After

This is very odd indeed.  This procedure is part of the library of Tcl/Tk
procedures included in the McIDAS distribution (in ~mcidas/bin/upcguiprocs.tcl).

> We then start receiving errors ".meteor command not found" in several

The only thing I can think of is your 'mcidas_start.sh' script is not setting
something that needs to be set.  Please try to use the standard way of starting
Unidata McIDAS:


-- or --

mcidas -config

and let me know if that works OK.

> Thanks again for all of your tremendous help!

No worries.

> P.S. You should have full sudo access as mcidas on webcat and allegan.
